Reading Windows Partition from Suse10.1


here's the problem, i can read the C drive from linux fine, but i can't read the D drive

it's listed as device /dev/sdb1, at mount point /windows/D

but when i try and mount it i get this


SoAndSo:/home/SuchandSuch # mount /windows/D
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so


don't suppose anyone out there can help me?

Is there any chance the D drive is NTFS format? Linux does not like NTFS, but it can be mounted. I just don't remember how.

I am assuming that the D drive is an EIDE drive, not SCSI, right? SCSI drives show up as sda or sdb or sdb1, like that. I would expect the D drive to show up as hdb.

You might try running dmesg | tail and tell us what it says about the second drive.

i suppose it's scsi, since it shows up as sdb1

dmesg | tail told me this

try mounting it with editing the fstab file locted in /etc/fstab

for example .this is wot i have mounted on my sys.
i created 4 drives in mnt.each corresponding to a drive in windows.
use the commands shown below to mount it
to know the name of ur disk in linux(eg /dev/sda...) use cmd fdisk -l





/dev/sda9 / reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 1
/dev/sda8 /boot reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2
/dev/sda7 swap swap defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
debugfs /sys/kernel/debug debugfs noauto 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
/dev/sda1 /mnt/c ntfs rw 0 0
